Jennifer Lopez is a demanding mother.
As the mother of 15-year-old twins Max and Emme, the actress was pulled to The Mother—an action-thriller based on a mother with an assassin history who emerges from hiding under a fresh threat—just by the name. In an exclusive interview with E! News at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on May 10, she added, “I can only do things that I really understand in a way now, that I relate to.”
In fact, Jennifer said that portraying a dangerous assassin reunited with her long-lost daughter provided her a better understanding of the intricacies of parenthood.
“I really discovered that while watching this movie, I became a better mom because I was thinking about it,” she added. “I was trying to figure out what that meant because the woman in this movie doesn’t know how to be a mom when her child and she are reunited.” (To hear more from Jennifer, check in tonight at 11 p.m. on E!
